This unique vacation rental is settled on a working permaculture farm in the beautiful valley of Bahrija near Rabat on the island of Malta. Surrounded by native trees, shrubs, and local animals, guests are free to roam the farm's three and a half acres of terraced land. Glampers will find themselves truly secluded away from city life, living simply and, for all intents and purposes, off the grid.

Baħrija itself is a small rural village located on high grounds with breathtaking panoramic views. The village is exposed to winds rushing up from the sea, meaning it has slightly colder weather than the rest of the island. Known for its gorgeous countryside, guests should be sure to explore the many walking treks, such as the Fomm ir-Riħ cliff walk or the Victoria Lines. The community is mostly made up of farmers, as the grape vines and fruits grown nearby thrive in the more moderate climate.

Activities

  • Biking
  • Kayaking/Canoeing
  • Swimming
  • Water sports
  • Scuba diving
  • Boating/Sailing
  • Horseback riding additional charge
  • Hiking
  • Stand-up paddleboarding

Glampers are encouraged to take part in the day-to-day running of the farm, including tending to the vegetables and learning about permaculture. There are incredible walking and hiking opportunities throughout the farm and nearby, with clifftop and valley views. The area is a photographer's dream, as animals often wander through the farm and there is an assortment of local vegetation.

The island of Malta is famed for its incredible historic sites, and guests should be sure to explore its fortresses, megalithic temples, and the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum. It also has fantastic beaches and unique ocean rock structures, where guests can go swimming, kayaking, canoeing, boating, scuba diving, snorkeling and so much more.
